What is Oxalyl dihydrazide?
Oxalyl dihydrazide, also known as Oxalyldihydrazide or simply ODH, is a chemical compound with the molecular formula C2H8N2O2. It is derived from oxalic acid and hydrazine and belongs to the class of organic compounds known as hydrazides.
Oxalyl dihydrazide is a white crystalline solid that is sparingly soluble in water. It is primarily used as a plant growth regulator or a plant growth inhibitor. It acts by inhibiting the biosynthesis of ethylene, a plant hormone responsible for various physiological processes, including fruit ripening and senescence.
By inhibiting ethylene production, oxalyl dihydrazide can prolong the shelf life of fruits, vegetables, and flowers, as well as inhibit sprouting in stored tubers and bulbs. It has been widely used in horticulture and agriculture to extend the storage life of harvested produce and prevent premature spoilage.
Furthermore, oxalyl dihydrazide has found applications in the synthesis of various organic compounds, such as pharmaceuticals, dyes, and polymers. Its hydrazide functional group can react with other compounds to form covalent bonds and participate in a variety of chemical reactions.
